SILC: Weekly Digest (11/07/10)

Dear SILC Students, Parents, Teachers and Volunteers:

Hope you all had a wonderful Diwali.

[1] Please note that we will be celebrating Diwali at SILC next Saturday. That is also our picture day. Do not miss SILC on that day. And remember to  wear your traditional / festive /Indian dresses for this event;

[2] Here are the logistics for that day

    (a) Only first hour classes will be held on that day (from 10 to 10:50).  Ralph Davini (our designated official photographer)  will come to each language class and take the picture.  Please be in the language class until your the class picture is taken.  (Language teachers: Please do not dismiss the class until the class picture is taken)

    (b) Adults dance will be held during the first period - they will practice in preparation for Nov 20 Indian Association of Minnesota visit/audit.

    (c) After the class pictures are taken, we will be taking the group picture in the hall way.

    (d) After the group pictures are taken, our first SILC News letter will be released by IAM (Indian Association of MN) board members. Please ensure that each family pick up one news letter each.

    (e)  there will be diyas decoration event in the cafetaria. Please ensure that childrens are occupying the tables evenly (do not get crowded just at one table).

    (f)  Snacks and sweets will be kept on the tables in the main hall way; As soon as you bring your snack/sweet, please make sure that you arrange it on the tables designated.

    (b) Aishwarya will send a separate note to her dance students about the dance class and practice. Please make a note of it and follow her directions.

[3] If you have not signed up to bring sweet or snack, please send a mail to Lakshmi Warriar or Lakshmi Buddhavarapu for the record.  If you have not signed up or do not send email, please bring a sweet or snack to share with others.

[4] Considering the large number of students in the dance classes, we have made some changes in the guidelines  / policies

As of Nov 6, 2010, these are the dividing lines for SILC dance classes.  Amrit Devgun's class - 1st and 2nd graders.  Aishwarya Menon's group 3rd - 5th graders, Neelam Malhotra's group - 6th grade and above.  Because of our rapid growth, and while the actual teachers may change, these will stand as the division for dance from now into the future.  There will NOT be any structured./formal dance class for children pre-1st grade.

If you still have any further questions, please contact the Principal

[5] I appreciate all the teachers and students for being vigilant and cautious in keeping the classrooms clean. All of you have done a very good job for the last two weeks.  Considering the Diwali event, please ensure that (a) diyas decoration event doesn't cause mess / spills in the cafetaria and (b) handling of diwali snacks / sweets is not causing the spills all over the floor. Please ensure that you cleanup after you eat.

[6] Thanks to all the teachers and board members who provided their brief bios.  These are posted at classes --> Know Your SILC Teachers and Board
Please make sure that you visit to know more about your teachers.
